Florence Lazar. You think the earth is a dead thing...
Exhibition tour by curators Sandra Cattini and Dean Inkster
26 March 2019
18h00 to 19h00
Concorde, Paris

Florence Lazar (born in Paris in 1966) is an artist, a filmmaker and a photographer. Her work focuses on creating awareness of minority narratives in specific geographical and social contexts. Investigation and attention to the way in which a story is passed on are central to her work.

The Florence Lazar exhibition at the Jeu de Paume provides a perspective on her work through a selection of films and photographs from 2000 to the present day. At the end of the 1990s, after the wars in former Yugoslavia, Florence Lazar grabbed a video camera and went to the scene. She had an urge to understand what had been going on in this country, which she felt close to because of her family history but at the same time foreign to because she lived in France and did not speak the language. But this is how she came to take up documentary as a genre and why it became a permanent feature of her work.
